Legacy Power: Become the Inferno

The initiates stood anxiously in a circle around their priest. Visibly he would be described as young if you didn't look him in the eyes. His face told a different story, the story of eyes that had seen too much but hungered for more. The priest's zealous tendencies only made the new members more nervous about what was to come.

The priest began bundling up twigs and underbrush, surrounding them with logs leaned on to one another forming a beautiful cone. On the side facing the priest, there was a space left open, just large enough to set the structure alight.

The priest stayed knelt before the flame with eyes half lidded. He was so close that the initiates could see the priest's skin begin to blister as the flames grew high and danced before the priest. Calmly his eyes opened. Eyes that were normally weary, consumed by nightmares of failures past now seemed alive with a fanatical glint.

"Now I begin."

An anxious mumble rose from the crowd of onlookers as the priest stuck his hand directly into the heart of the flame, then a gasp as the priest pulled his hand out with a fire dancing in his hands. The priest held the fire aloft, scanning the crowd, and then brought the fire to his body, spreading it almost like a lotion across his arms.

The priest continued this for a few minutes, reaching into the flame and applying it to his skin. New members began screaming or crying as they watched their leader be consumed by flames.

Soon the Inferno stood, and the room fell silent.

Then the Inferno spoke.
